Kentucky clerks object to ruling, halt marriage licenses
LOUISVILLE, Ky. - A few court clerks in Kentucky are refusing to issue marriage licenses to any couple as an objection to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage.
Casey County Clerk Casey Davis says his religious convictions will not allow him to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. He says his office is no longer issuing licenses to any couple.
Davis says "in good conscience I cannot put my name on one of those licenses." He says no same-sex couple has been in to the office to ask for one.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that clerks in Rowan and Lawrence counties have also halted issuing marriage licenses in response to the Supreme Court ruling.
Terry Sebastian, a spokesman for Gov. Steve Beshear, says the governor's office is reviewing how to respond.
